“Friendly guesthouse in a quiet spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with my wife and one year old son for new year. We ended up staying for 5 nights and the owners were lovely. They made a fuss of our son and were helpful and friendly. We had a late flight from Colombo and they let us keep the room until we caught our taxi (which they organized for us dor a much cheaper price than anywhere else) at 8pm. It meant we could enjoy our last day on the beach and have dinner and a shower before we left.
It's in a good quiet location for families amd we'd happily go back to stay there.Thank you!

On our first day here we went to the beach after check-in, also had some lunch and came back after 2-3 hours. We then noticed that the lights were on in the room even though we turned it of, the my girlfriend saw that someone had gone through here stuff. Nothing of here's was missig but I on the other hand had lost $16 in cash from my backpack in the room!

We talked to the manager right away. Since no sign of force on the door that means someone walked in with a key.
We were not taken very seriously and the manager was not sober at the moment and acted very suspiciusly.
However, we left and changed guesthouse since we told them we don't feel safe.
And it had happend one time before (read it here on TripAdvisor) and the manager confirmed it.

Not safe to stay here!!

We stayed at this gest house for 2 mounth. Owners name - Janath. He said first all bills included. After that every week he asked us to pay for something. First we had to pay him for the gas... After that he said the we used too much electricity... Then he said the we must pay for the internet or he turned off it.... Also he tryed to buy new cooker and refrigerator, of course he tryed to get our money for that.... So we have no respect to Janath. And we advice you to choose another gest house if you want to stay at Unawatuna for a long time... I think maybe its good to stay here for 1-2 days not more. But be ready to pay more money than owner said you first. He count every coin and trying to get more your money.

Although Meedum Villa was not first choice I found it to suit us very well.
First of all we live in Sri Lanka and have two dogs and the owner was the only person to let us bring our dogs after sending out lots of emails so always a thumbs up in my book.
He put us in the top room which had its own veranda that was great. A four poster bed with a clean mosquito net which was another plus. No AC a minus but no big deal. Clean room and everywhere else was clean.Had hot water but needs a little more explanation to where the switch was or a sticker in the bathroom.Quiet location but can not drive there as the alley is not big enough for a car. He was very kind to make food for our dogs even though it was Sihanalese New Year. The location is about a 5 minute walk to Happy Banana which is right on the beach and probably the better part of the beach as it is wider than where I usually go which is nearer Kingfisher. There was a fridge stocked with drinks that you could help yourself and sign everytime you took a drink which is very trusting and convenient.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and I would recommend staying here if you are looking for good semi budget accommodation.

I had that below mentioned room #1 with balcony, and it really is nice & clean. Building is aprox. 4-5 mins walking from the beach, which is good, because ocean and some bars can be very loud during the nights! Owners are nice and friendly. One of the best acommodations I had during my SL backpacker travels. Payed 2500 per night, beer is 250 and no extra 10% fee. I did like & would recommend this place!

We stayed one night and found Meedum very good for the price. The room was spotless and bathroom large with hot water.
It is in a tucked-away corner of Unawatuna, a nice rest from the busy beach and tourist area. The owner and his family were very friendly and accommodating.

In general it is an OK place to stay for the price, however on two occasions money went missing from my room so take care if you stay here.
